<Bible, English, King James, According to the documentary hypothesis

According to the documentary hypothesis, the Torah is composed from a number of originally independant sources joined by a redactor. One of these supposed sources is named the "Priestly Source", due to the considerable prevelance of material within it that would concern a priest.

Although the Priestly source is generally regarded as a single source text, it is believed that a small part within it, known as the Holiness Code, due to its repeated mentions of the word holy, was an earlier text that the creator of the Priestly Source embedded within it. Aside from the narrative, the text contains a number of other types of material, which may derive from other seperate documents.

Part 26 - The veil of Moses[edit]

1And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai,

2Two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God.

3And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the two tables of testimony in Moses' hand,

4When he came down from the mount, that Moses wist not that the skin of his face shone while he talked with him.

5And when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone; and they were afraid to come nigh him.

6And Moses called unto them; and Aaron and all the rulers of the congregation returned unto him: and Moses talked with them.

7And afterward all the children of Israel came nigh: and he gave them in commandment all that the LORD had spoken with him in mount Sinai.

8And till Moses had done speaking with them, he put a vail on his face.

9But when Moses went in before the LORD to speak with him, he took the vail off, until he came out.

10And he came out, and spake unto the children of Israel that which he was commanded.

11And the children of Israel saw the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses' face shone:

12And Moses put the vail upon his face again, until he went in to speak with him.

Part 27 - The announcement of the Instructions[edit]

1And Moses gathered all the congregation of the children of Israel together, and said unto them,

2These are the words which the LORD hath commanded, that ye should do them.

3Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be to you an holy day, a sabbath of rest to the LORD:

4Whosoever doeth work therein shall be put to death.

5Ye shall kindle no fire throughout your habitations upon the sabbath day.

6And Moses spake unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, saying,

7This is the thing which the LORD commanded, saying,

8Take ye from among you an offering unto the LORD: whosoever is of a willing heart, let him bring it, an offering of the LORD; gold, and silver, and brass,

9And blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats' hair,

10And rams' skins dyed red, and badgers' skins, and shittim wood,

11And oil for the light, and spices for anointing oil, and for the sweet incense,

12And onyx stones, and stones to be set for the ephod, and for the breastplate.

13And every wise hearted among you shall come, and make all that the LORD hath commanded;

14The tabernacle, his tent, and his covering, his taches, and his boards, his bars, his pillars, and his sockets,

15The ark, and the staves thereof, with the mercy seat, and the vail of the covering,

16The table, and his staves, and all his vessels, and the shewbread,

17The candlestick also for the light, and his furniture, and his lamps, with the oil for the light,

18And the incense altar, and his staves, and the anointing oil, and the sweet incense, and the hanging for the door at the entering in of the tabernacle,

19The altar of burnt offering, with his brasen grate, his staves, and all his vessels, the laver and his foot,

20The hangings of the court, his pillars, and their sockets, and the hanging for the door of the court,

21The pins of the tabernacle, and the pins of the court, and their cords,

22The cloths of service, to do service in the holy place, the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, to minister in the priest's office.

23And all the congregation of the children of Israel departed from the presence of Moses.

24And they came, every one whose heart stirred him up, and every one whom his spirit made willing,

25And they brought the LORD's offering to the work of the tabernacle of the congregation, and for all his service, and for the holy garments.

26And they came, both men and women, as many as were willing hearted, and brought bracelets, and earrings, and rings, and tablets, all jewels of gold:

27And every man that offered offered an offering of gold unto the LORD.

28And every man, with whom was found blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats' hair, and red skins of rams, and badgers' skins, brought them.

29Every one that did offer an offering of silver and brass brought the LORD's offering:

30And every man, with whom was found shittim wood for any work of the service, brought it.

31And all the women that were wise hearted did spin with their hands, and brought that which they had spun, both of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, and of fine linen.

32And all the women whose heart stirred them up in wisdom spun goats' hair.

33And the rulers brought onyx stones, and stones to be set, for the ephod, and for the breastplate;

34And spice, and oil for the light, and for the anointing oil, and for the sweet incense.

35The children of Israel brought a willing offering unto the LORD, every man and woman,

36Whose heart made them willing to bring for all manner of work, which the LORD had commanded to be made by the hand of Moses.

Part 28 - Construction according to the Instructions[edit]

1And Moses said unto the children of Israel, See, the LORD hath called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah;

2And he hath filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship;

3And to devise curious works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass,

4And in the cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of wood, to make any manner of cunning work.

5And he hath put in his heart that he may teach, both he, and Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan.

6Them hath he filled with wisdom of heart, to work all manner of work, of the engraver, and of the cunning workman, and of the embroiderer, in blue, and in purple, in scarlet, and in fine linen, and of the weaver, even of them that do any work, and of those that devise cunning work.

7In blue, and in purple, in scarlet, and in fine linen, and of the weaver, even of them that do any work, and of those that devise cunning work.

8Then wrought Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every wise hearted man,

9In whom the LORD put wisdom and understanding to know how to work all manner of work for the service of the sanctuary, according to all that the LORD had commanded.

10And Moses called Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every wise hearted man,

11In whose heart the LORD had put wisdom, even every one whose heart stirred him up to come unto the work to do it:

12And they received of Moses all the offering, which the children of Israel had brought for the work of the service of the sanctuary, to make it withal.

13And they brought yet unto him free offerings every morning.

14And all the wise men, that wrought all the work of the sanctuary, came every man from his work which they made;

15And they spake unto Moses, saying, The people bring much more than enough for the service of the work, which the LORD commanded to make.

16And Moses gave commandment, and they caused it to be proclaimed throughout the camp, saying,

17Let neither man nor woman make any more work for the offering of the sanctuary. So the people were restrained from bringing.

18For the stuff they had was sufficient for all the work to make it, and too much.

19And every wise hearted man among them that wrought the work of the tabernacle made ten curtains of fine twined linen,

20And blue, and purple, and scarlet: with cherubims of cunning work made he them.

21The length of one curtain was twenty and eight cubits, and the breadth of one curtain four cubits: the curtains were all of one size.

22And he coupled the five curtains one unto another: and the other five curtains he coupled one unto another.

23And he made loops of blue on the edge of one curtain from the selvedge in the coupling:

24Likewise he made in the uttermost side of another curtain, in the coupling of the second.

25Fifty loops made he in one curtain, and fifty loops made he in the edge of the curtain which was in the coupling of the second: the loops held one curtain to another.

26And he made fifty taches of gold, and coupled the curtains one unto another with the taches: so it became one tabernacle.

27And he made curtains of goats' hair for the tent over the tabernacle: eleven curtains he made them.

28The length of one curtain was thirty cubits, and four cubits was the breadth of one curtain: the eleven curtains were of one size.

29And he coupled five curtains by themselves, and six curtains by themselves.

30And he made fifty loops upon the uttermost edge of the curtain in the coupling,

31And fifty loops made he upon the edge of the curtain which coupleth the second.

32And he made fifty taches of brass to couple the tent together, that it might be one.

33And he made a covering for the tent of rams' skins dyed red, and a covering of badgers' skins above that.

34And he made boards for the tabernacle of shittim wood, standing up.

35The length of a board was ten cubits, and the breadth of a board one cubit and a half.

36One board had two tenons, equally distant one from another: thus did he make for all the boards of the tabernacle.

37And he made boards for the tabernacle; twenty boards for the south side southward:

38And forty sockets of silver he made under the twenty boards;

39Two sockets under one board for his two tenons, and two sockets under another board for his two tenons.

40And for the other side of the tabernacle, which is toward the north corner, he made twenty boards,

41And their forty sockets of silver; two sockets under one board, and two sockets under another board.

42And for the sides of the tabernacle westward he made six boards.

43And two boards made he for the corners of the tabernacle in the two sides.

44And they were coupled beneath, and coupled together at the head thereof, to one ring:

45Thus he did to both of them in both the corners.

46And there were eight boards; and their sockets were sixteen sockets of silver, under every board two sockets.

47And he made bars of shittim wood; five for the boards of the one side of the tabernacle,

48And five bars for the boards of the other side of the tabernacle, and five bars for the boards of the tabernacle for the sides westward.

49And he made the middle bar to shoot through the boards from the one end to the other.

50And he overlaid the boards with gold, and made their rings of gold to be places for the bars, and overlaid the bars with gold.

51And he made a vail of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen: with cherubims made he it of cunning work.

52And he made thereunto four pillars of shittim wood, and overlaid them with gold:

53Their hooks were of gold; and he cast for them four sockets of silver.

54And he made an hanging for the tabernacle door of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen, of needlework;

55And the five pillars of it with their hooks: and he overlaid their chapiters and their fillets with gold: but their five sockets were of brass.

56And Bezaleel made the ark of shittim wood: two cubits and a half was the length of it,

57And a cubit and a half the breadth of it, and a cubit and a half the height of it:

58And he overlaid it with pure gold within and without, and made a crown of gold to it round about.

59And he cast for it four rings of gold, to be set by the four corners of it;

60Even two rings upon the one side of it, and two rings upon the other side of it.

61And he made staves of shittim wood, and overlaid them with gold.

62And he put the staves into the rings by the sides of the ark, to bear the ark.

63And he made the mercy seat of pure gold: two cubits and a half was the length thereof, and one cubit and a half the breadth thereof.

64And he made two cherubims of gold, beaten out of one piece made he them, on the two ends of the mercy seat;

65One cherub on the end on this side, and another cherub on the other end on that side:

66Out of the mercy seat made he the cherubims on the two ends thereof.

67And the cherubims spread out their wings on high, and covered with their wings over the mercy seat,

68With their faces one to another; even to the mercy seatward were the faces of the cherubims.

69And he made the table of shittim wood: two cubits was the length thereof,

70And a cubit the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof:

71And he overlaid it with pure gold, and made thereunto a crown of gold round about.

72Also he made thereunto a border of an handbreadth round about; and made a crown of gold for the border thereof round about.

73And he cast for it four rings of gold, and put the rings upon the four corners that were in the four feet thereof.

74Over against the border were the rings, the places for the staves to bear the table.

75And he made the staves of shittim wood, and overlaid them with gold, to bear the table.

76And he made the vessels which were upon the table, his dishes, and his spoons, and his bowls, and his covers to cover withal, of pure gold.

77And he made the candlestick of pure gold: of beaten work made he the candlestick;

78His shaft, and his branch, his bowls, his knops, and his flowers, were of the same:

79And six branches going out of the sides thereof;

80Three branches of the candlestick out of the one side thereof, and three branches of the candlestick out of the other side thereof:

81Three bowls made after the fashion of almonds in one branch, a knop and a flower;

82And three bowls made like almonds in another branch, a knop and a flower:

83So throughout the six branches going out of the candlestick. and in the candlestick were four bowls made like almonds, his knops, and his flowers:

84And a knop under two branches of the same, and a knop under two branches of the same,

85And a knop under two branches of the same, according to the six branches going out of it.

86Their knops and their branches were of the same: all of it was one beaten work of pure gold.

87And he made his seven lamps, and his snuffers, and his snuffdishes, of pure gold.

88Of a talent of pure gold made he it, and all the vessels thereof.

89And he made the incense altar of shittim wood: the length of it was a cubit, and the breadth of it a cubit;

90It was foursquare; and two cubits was the height of it; the horns thereof were of the same.

91And he overlaid it with pure gold, both the top of it, and the sides thereof round about, and the horns of it:

92Also he made unto it a crown of gold round about.

93And he made two rings of gold for it under the crown thereof, by the two corners of it,

94Upon the two sides thereof, to be places for the staves to bear it withal.

95And he made the staves of shittim wood, and overlaid them with gold.

96And he made the holy anointing oil, and the pure incense of sweet spices, according to the work of the apothecary.

97And he made the altar of burnt offering of shittim wood: five cubits was the length thereof, and five cubits the breadth thereof;

98It was foursquare; and three cubits the height thereof.

99And he made the horns thereof on the four corners of it; the horns thereof were of the same: and he overlaid it with brass.

100And he made all the vessels of the altar, the pots, and the shovels, and the basons, and the fleshhooks, and the firepans:

101All the vessels thereof made he of brass. And he made for the altar a brasen grate of network under the compass thereof beneath unto the midst of it.

102And he cast four rings for the four ends of the grate of brass, to be places for the staves.

103And he made the staves of shittim wood, and overlaid them with brass.

104And he put the staves into the rings on the sides of the altar, to bear it withal; he made the altar hollow with boards.

105And he made the laver of brass, and the foot of it of brass,

106Of the lookingglasses of the women assembling, which assembled at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

107And he made the court: on the south side southward the hangings of the court were of fine twined linen, an hundred cubits:

108Their pillars were twenty, and their brasen sockets twenty;

109The hooks of the pillars and their fillets were of silver.

110And for the north side the hangings were an hundred cubits, their pillars were twenty, and their sockets of brass twenty;

111The hooks of the pillars and their fillets of silver.

112And for the west side were hangings of fifty cubits, their pillars ten, and their sockets ten;

113The hooks of the pillars and their fillets of silver.

114And for the east side eastward fifty cubits.

115The hangings of the one side of the gate were fifteen cubits; their pillars three, and their sockets three.

116And for the other side of the court gate, on this hand and that hand, were hangings of fifteen cubits;

117Their pillars three, and their sockets three.

118All the hangings of the court round about were of fine twined linen.

119And the sockets for the pillars were of brass; the hooks of the pillars and their fillets of silver;

120And the overlaying of their chapiters of silver; and all the pillars of the court were filleted with silver.

121And the hanging for the gate of the court was needlework, of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen:

122And twenty cubits was the length, and the height in the breadth was five cubits, answerable to the hangings of the court.

123And their pillars were four, and their sockets of brass four; their hooks of silver,

124And the overlaying of their chapiters and their fillets of silver.

125And all the pins of the tabernacle, and of the court round about, were of brass.

126This is the sum of the tabernacle, even of the tabernacle of testimony, as it was counted,

127According to the commandment of Moses, for the service of the Levites, by the hand of Ithamar, son to Aaron the priest.

128And Bezaleel the son Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, made all that the LORD commanded Moses.

129And with him was Aholiab, son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, an engraver, and a cunning workman,

130And an embroiderer in blue, and in purple, and in scarlet, and fine linen.

131All the gold that was occupied for the work in all the work of the holy place, even the gold of the offering, was twenty and nine talents, and seven hundred and thirty shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary.

132And the silver of them that were numbered of the congregation was an hundred talents, and a thousand seven hundred and threescore and fifteen shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary:

133A bekah for every man, that is, half a shekel, after the shekel of the sanctuary,

134For every one that went to be numbered, from twenty years old and upward,

135For six hundred thousand and three thousand and five hundred and fifty men.

136And of the hundred talents of silver were cast the sockets of the sanctuary, and the sockets of the vail;

137An hundred sockets of the hundred talents, a talent for a socket.

138And of the thousand seven hundred seventy and five shekels he made hooks for the pillars, and overlaid their chapiters, and filleted them.

139And the brass of the offering was seventy talents, and two thousand and four hundred shekels.

140And therewith he made the sockets to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation,

141And the brasen altar, and the brasen grate for it, and all the vessels of the altar,

142And the sockets of the court round about, and the sockets of the court gate,

143And all the pins of the tabernacle, and all the pins of the court round about.

144And of the blue, and purple, and scarlet, they made cloths of service, to do service in the holy place,

145And made the holy garments for Aaron; as the LORD commanded Moses.

146And he made the ephod of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen.

147And they did beat the gold into thin plates, and cut it into wires,

148To work it in the blue, and in the purple, and in the scarlet, and in the fine linen, with cunning work.

149They made shoulderpieces for it, to couple it together: by the two edges was it coupled together.

150And the curious girdle of his ephod, that was upon it, was of the same, according to the work thereof;

151Of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen; as the LORD commanded Moses.

152And they wrought onyx stones inclosed in ouches of gold, graven, as signets are graven, with the names of the children of Israel.

153And he put them on the shoulders of the ephod,

154That they should be stones for a memorial to the children of Israel; as the LORD commanded Moses.

155And he made the breastplate of cunning work, like the work of the ephod; of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen.

156It was foursquare; they made the breastplate double: a span was the length thereof, and a span the breadth thereof, being doubled.

157And they set in it four rows of stones:

158The first row was a sardius, a topaz, and a carbuncle: this was the first row.

159And the second row, an emerald, a sapphire, and a diamond.

160And the third row, a ligure, an agate, and an amethyst.

161And the fourth row, a beryl, an onyx, and a jasper:

162They were inclosed in ouches of gold in their inclosings.

163And the stones were according to the names of the children of Israel, twelve, according to their names,

164Like the engravings of a signet, every one with his name, according to the twelve tribes.

165And they made upon the breastplate chains at the ends, of wreathen work of pure gold.

166And they made two ouches of gold, and two gold rings; and put the two rings in the two ends of the breastplate.

167And they put the two wreathen chains of gold in the two rings on the ends of the breastplate.

168And the two ends of the two wreathen chains they fastened in the two ouches,

169And put them on the shoulderpieces of the ephod, before it.

170And they made two rings of gold, and put them on the two ends of the breastplate, upon the border of it, which was on the side of the ephod inward.

171And they made two other golden rings, and put them on the two sides of the ephod underneath,

172Toward the forepart of it, over against the other coupling thereof, above the curious girdle of the ephod.

173And they did bind the breastplate by his rings unto the rings of the ephod with a lace of blue,

174That it might be above the curious girdle of the ephod, and that the breastplate might not be loosed from the ephod; as the LORD commanded Moses.

175And he made the robe of the ephod of woven work, all of blue.

176And there was an hole in the midst of the robe, as the hole of an habergeon, with a band round about the hole, that it should not rend.

177And they made upon the hems of the robe pomegranates of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and twined linen.

178And they made bells of pure gold, and put the bells between the pomegranates upon the hem of the robe, round about between the pomegranates;

179A bell and a pomegranate, a bell and a pomegranate, round about the hem of the robe to minister in; as the LORD commanded Moses.

180And they made coats of fine linen of woven work for Aaron, and for his sons,

181And a mitre of fine linen, and goodly bonnets of fine linen, and linen breeches of fine twined linen,

182And a girdle of fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet, of needlework; as the LORD commanded Moses.

183And they made the plate of the holy crown of pure gold, and wrote upon it a writing,

184Like to the engravings of a signet, HOLINESS TO THE LORD.

185And they tied unto it a lace of blue, to fasten it on high upon the mitre; as the LORD commanded Moses.

186Thus was all the work of the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation finished:

187And the children of Israel did according to all that the LORD commanded Moses, so did they.

188And they brought the tabernacle unto Moses, the tent, and all his furniture, his taches, his boards, his bars, and his pillars, and his sockets,

189And the covering of rams' skins dyed red, and the covering of badgers' skins, and the vail of the covering,

190The ark of the testimony, and the staves thereof, and the mercy seat,

191The table, and all the vessels thereof, and the shewbread,

192The pure candlestick, with the lamps thereof, even with the lamps to be set in order, and all the vessels thereof, and the oil for light,

193And the golden altar, and the anointing oil, and the sweet incense, and the hanging for the tabernacle door,

194The brasen altar, and his grate of brass, his staves, and all his vessels, the laver and his foot,

195The hangings of the court, his pillars, and his sockets, and the hanging for the court gate,

196His cords, and his pins, and all the vessels of the service of the tabernacle, for the tent of the congregation,

197The cloths of service to do service in the holy place, and the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and his sons' garments, to minister in the priest's office.

198According to all that the LORD commanded Moses, so the children of Israel made all the work.

199And Moses did look upon all the work, and, behold, they had done it as the LORD had commanded, even so had they done it: and Moses blessed them.

Part 29 - The Prepararation of the Tabernacle[edit]

1And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

2On the first day of the first month shalt thou set up the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation.

3And thou shalt put therein the ark of the testimony, and cover the ark with the vail.

4And thou shalt bring in the table, and set in order the things that are to be set in order upon it;

4And thou shalt bring in the candlestick, and light the lamps thereof.

5And thou shalt set the altar of gold for the incense before the ark of the testimony, and put the hanging of the door to the tabernacle.

6And thou shalt set the altar of the burnt offering before the door of the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation.

7And thou shalt set the laver between the tent of the congregation and the altar, and shalt put water therein.

8And thou shalt set up the court round about, and hang up the hanging at the court gate.

9And thou shalt take the anointing oil, and anoint the tabernacle, and all that is therein,

9And shalt hallow it, and all the vessels thereof: and it shall be holy.

10And thou shalt anoint the altar of the burnt offering, and all his vessels, and sanctify the altar: and it shall be an altar most holy.

11And thou shalt anoint the laver and his foot, and sanctify it.

12And thou shalt bring Aaron and his sons unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and wash them with water.

13And thou shalt put upon Aaron the holy garments, and anoint him, and sanctify him; that he may minister unto me in the priest's office.

14And thou shalt bring his sons, and clothe them with coats:

15And thou shalt anoint them, as thou didst anoint their father, that they may minister unto me in the priest's office:

16For their anointing shall surely be an everlasting priesthood throughout their generations.

17Thus did Moses: according to all that the LORD commanded him, so did he.

18And it came to pass in the first month in the second year, on the first day of the month, that the tabernacle was reared up.

19And Moses reared up the tabernacle, and fastened his sockets, and set up the boards thereof,

20And put in the bars thereof, and reared up his pillars.

21And he spread abroad the tent over the tabernacle, and put the covering of the tent above upon it; as the LORD commanded Moses.

22And he took and put the testimony into the ark, and set the staves on the ark, and put the mercy seat above upon the ark:

23And he brought the ark into the tabernacle, and set up the vail of the covering,

24And covered the ark of the testimony; as the LORD commanded Moses.

25And he put the table in the tent of the congregation, upon the side of the tabernacle northward, without the vail.

26And he set the bread in order upon it before the LORD; as the LORD had commanded Moses.

27And he put the candlestick in the tent of the congregation, over against the table, on the side of the tabernacle southward.

28And he lighted the lamps before the LORD; as the LORD commanded Moses.

29And he put the golden altar in the tent of the congregation before the vail:

30And he burnt sweet incense thereon; as the LORD commanded Moses.

31And he set up the hanging at the door of the tabernacle.

32And he put the altar of burnt offering by the door of the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation,

33And offered upon it the burnt offering and the meat offering; as the LORD commanded Moses.

34And he set the laver between the tent of the congregation and the altar, and put water there, to wash withal.

35And Moses and Aaron and his sons washed their hands and their feet thereat:

36When they went into the tent of the congregation, and when they came near unto the altar, they washed; as the LORD commanded Moses.

37And he reared up the court round about the tabernacle and the altar, and set up the hanging of the court gate. So Moses finished the work.

38Then a cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.

39And Moses was not able to enter into the tent of the congregation, because the cloud abode thereon,

40And the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.

41And when the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the children of Israel went onward in all their journeys:

42But if the cloud were not taken up, then they journeyed not till the day that it was taken up.

43For the cloud of the LORD was upon the tabernacle by day, and fire was on it by night,

44In the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys.

2And he shall bring his trespass offering unto the LORD for his sin which he hath sinned, a female from the flock, a lamb or a kid of the goats, for a sin offering;

AAnd the priest shall make an atonement for him concerning his sin.
BAnd if he be not able to bring a lamb, then he shall bring for his trespass, which he hath committed,
iTwo turtledoves, or two young pigeons, unto the LORD; one for a sin offering, and the other for a burnt offering.
iiAnd he shall bring them unto the priest, who shall offer that which is for the sin offering first,
aAnd wring off his head from his neck, but shall not divide it asunder:
bAnd he shall sprinkle of the blood of the sin offering upon the side of the altar;
cAnd the rest of the blood shall be wrung out at the bottom of the altar: it is a sin offering.
iiiAnd he shall offer the second for a burnt offering, according to the manner:
ivAnd the priest shall make an atonement for him for his sin which he hath sinned, and it shall be forgiven him.
CBut if he be not able to bring two turtledoves, or two young pigeons,

5Then he shall bring for his trespass unto the LORD a ram without blemish out of the flocks,

AWith thy estimation by shekels of silver, after the shekel of the sanctuary, for a trespass offering.
BAnd he shall make amends for the harm that he hath done in the holy thing, and shall add the fifth part thereto, and give it unto the priest:
CAnd the priest shall make an atonement for him with the ram of the trespass offering, and it shall be forgiven him.

6And if a soul sin, and commit any of these things which are forbidden to be done by the commandments of the LORD;

2If a soul sin, and commit a trespass against the LORD,

3And lie unto his neighbour in that which was delivered him to keep, or in fellowship,

4Or in a thing taken away by violence, or hath deceived his neighbour;

5Or have found that which was lost, and lieth concerning it, and sweareth falsely; in any of all these that a man doeth, sinning therein:

6Then it shall be, because he hath sinned, and is guilty,

7That he shall restore that which he took violently away, or the thing which he hath deceitfully gotten,

8Or that which was delivered him to keep, or the lost thing which he found,

9Or all that about which he hath sworn falsely; he shall even restore it in the principal,

10And shall add the fifth part more thereto, and give it unto him to whom it appertaineth, in the day of his trespass offering.

11And he shall bring his trespass offering unto the LORD, a ram without blemish out of the flock, with thy estimation, for a trespass offering, unto the priest:

Part 36 - Laws about Disposal of Offerings[edit]

1And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Command Aaron and his sons, saying,

2This is the law of the burnt offering:

AIt is the burnt offering, because of the burning upon the altar all night unto the morning, and the fire of the altar shall be burning in it.
BAnd the priest shall put on his linen garment, and his linen breeches shall he put upon his flesh,
CAnd take up the ashes which the fire hath consumed with the burnt offering on the altar, and he shall put them beside the altar.
DAnd he shall put off his garments, and put on other garments, and carry forth the ashes without the camp unto a clean place.
EAnd the fire upon the altar shall be burning in it; it shall not be put out:
FAnd the priest shall burn wood on it every morning, and lay the burnt offering in order upon it;
GAnd he shall burn thereon the fat of the peace offerings.
HThe fire shall ever be burning upon the altar; it shall nevergo out.

3And this is the law of the meat offering:

AThe sons of Aaron shall offer it before the LORD, before the altar.
BAnd he shall take of it his handful, of the flour of the meat offering, and of the oil thereof, and all the frankincense which is upon the meat offering,
CAnd shall burn it upon the altar for a sweet savour, even the memorial of it, unto the LORD.
DAnd the remainder thereof shall Aaron and his sons eat: with unleavened bread shall it be eaten in the holy place;
EIn the court of the tabernacle of the congregation they shall eat it.
FIt shall not be baken with leaven. I have given it unto them for their portion of my offerings made by fire;
GIt is most holy, as is the sin offering, and as the trespass offering.
HAll the males among the children of Aaron shall eat of it.
IIt shall be a statute for ever in your generations concerning the offerings of the LORD made by fire: every one that toucheth them shall be holy.

4And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

5This is the offering of Aaron and of his sons, which they shall offer unto the LORD in the day when he is anointed;

AThe tenth part of an ephah of fine flour for a meat offering perpetual, half of it in the morning, and half thereof at night.
BIn a pan it shall be made with oil; and when it is baken, thou shalt bring it in:
CAnd the baken pieces of the meat offering shalt thou offer for a sweet savour unto the LORD.
DAnd the priest of his sons that is anointed in his stead shall offer it:
EIt is a statute for ever unto the LORD; it shall be wholly burnt.
FFor every meat offering for the priest shall be wholly burnt: it shall not be eaten.

6And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto Aaron and to his sons, saying,

7This is the law of the sin offering:

AIn the place where the burnt offering is killed shall the sin offering be killed before the LORD: it is most holy.
BThe priest that offereth it for sin shall eat it: in the holy place shall it be eaten, in the court of the tabernacle of the congregation.
CWhatsoever shall touch the flesh thereof shall be holy:
DAnd when there is sprinkled of the blood thereof upon any garment, thou shalt wash that whereon it was sprinkled in the holy place.
EBut the earthen vessel wherein it is sodden shall be broken:
FAnd if it be sodden in a brasen pot, it shall be both scoured, and rinsed in water.
GAll the males among the priests shall eat thereof: it is most holy.
HAnd no sin offering, whereof any of the blood is brought into the tabernacle of the congregation to reconcile withal in the holy place, shall be eaten: it shall be burnt in the fire.

8Likewise this is the law of the trespass offering: it is most holy.

AIn the place where they kill the burnt offering shall they kill the trespass offering:
BAnd the blood thereof shall he sprinkle round about upon the altar.
CAnd he shall offer of it all the fat thereof; the rump, and the fat that covereth the inwards,
DAnd the two kidneys, and the fat that is on them, which is by the flanks, and the caul that is above the liver, with the kidneys, it shall he take away:
EAnd the priest shall burn them upon the altar for an offering made by fire unto the LORD: it is a trespass offering.
FEvery male among the priests shall eat thereof: it shall be eaten in the holy place: it is most holy.
GAs the sin offering is, so is the trespass offering: there is one law for them: the priest that maketh atonement therewith shall have it.

9And the priest that offereth any man's burnt offering, even the priest shall have to himself the skin of the burnt offering which he hath offered.

10And all the meat offering that is baken in the oven, and all that is dressed in the fryingpan, and in the pan, shall be the priest's that offereth it.

11And every meat offering, mingled with oil, and dry, shall all the sons of Aaron have, one as much as another.

12And this is the law of the sacrifice of peace offerings, which he shall offer unto the LORD.

AIf he offer it for a thanksgiving,
iThen he shall offer with the sacrifice of thanksgiving unleavened cakes mingled with oil,
iiAnd unleavened wafers anointed with oil, and cakes mingled with oil, of fine flour, fried.
iiiBesides the cakes, he shall offer for his offering leavened bread with the sacrifice of thanksgiving of his peace offerings.
ivAnd of it he shall offer one out of the whole oblation for an heave offering unto the LORD,
vAnd it shall be the priest's that sprinkleth the blood of the peace offerings.
viAnd the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings for thanksgiving shall be eaten the same day that it is offered;
viiHe shall not leave any of it until the morning.
BBut if the sacrifice of his offering be a vow, or a voluntary offering,
iIt shall be eaten the same day that he offereth his sacrifice:
iiAnd on the morrow also the remainder of it shall be eaten:
iiiBut the remainder of the flesh of the sacrifice on the third day shall be burnt with fire.
CAnd if any of the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings be eaten at all on the third day,
iIt shall not be accepted, neither shall it be imputed unto him that offereth it:
iiIt shall be an abomination, and the soul that eateth of it shall bear his iniquity.
DAnd the flesh that toucheth any unclean thing shall not be eaten; it shall be burnt with fire:
iAnd as for the flesh, all that be clean shall eat thereof.
EBut the soul that eateth of the flesh of the sacrifice of peace offerings, that pertain unto the LORD,
iHaving his uncleanness upon him, even that soul shall be cut off from his people.
iiMoreover the soul that shall touch any unclean thing, as the uncleanness of man, or any unclean beast, or any abominable unclean thing,
iiiAnd eat of the flesh of the sacrifice of peace offerings, which pertain unto the LORD, even that soul shall be cut off from his people.

Part 37 - Prohibitions against eating Fat and Blood[edit]

1And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, saying,

2Ye shall eat no manner of fat, of ox, or of sheep, or of goat.

3And the fat of the beast that dieth of itself, and the fat of that which is torn with beasts, may be used in any other use:

3But ye shall in no wise eat of it.

4For whosoever eateth the fat of the beast, of which men offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD,

5Even the soul that eateth it shall be cut off from his people.

6Moreover ye shall eat no manner of blood, whether it be of fowl or of beast, in any of your dwellings.

7Whatsoever soul it be that eateth any manner of blood, even that soul shall be cut off from his people.

Part 38 - Laws of Portions of Offerings due to the Priests[edit]

1And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, saying,

2He that offereth the sacrifice of his peace offerings unto the LORD shall bring his oblation unto the LORD of the sacrifice of his peace offerings.

3His own hands shall bring the offerings of the LORD made by fire, the fat with the breast,

4It shall he bring, that the breast may be waved for a wave offering before the LORD.

5And the priest shall burn the fat upon the altar: but the breast shall be Aaron's and his sons'.

6And the right shoulder shall ye give unto the priest for an heave offering of the sacrifices of your peace offerings.

7He among the sons of Aaron, that offereth the blood of the peace offerings, and the fat, shall have the right shoulder for his part.

8For the wave breast and the heave shoulder have I taken of the children of Israel from off the sacrifices of their peace offerings,

9And have given them unto Aaron the priest and unto his sons by a statute for ever from among the children of Israel.

10This is the portion of the anointing of Aaron, and of the anointing of his sons, out of the offerings of the LORD made by fire,

11In the day when he presented them to minister unto the LORD in the priest's office;

12Which the LORD commanded to be given them of the children of Israel, in the day that he anointed them, by a statute for ever throughout their generations.

13This is the law of the burnt offering, of the meat offering, and of the sin offering, and of the trespass offering, and of the consecrations, and of the sacrifice of the peace offerings;

14Which the LORD commanded Moses in mount Sinai, in the day that he commanded the children of Israel to offer their oblations unto the LORD, in the wilderness of Sinai.

Part 39 - The Ordination of Aaron[edit]

1And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

2Take Aaron and his sons with him, and the garments, and the anointing oil, and a bullock for the sin offering, and two rams, and a basket of unleavened bread;

3And gather thou all the congregation together unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

4And Moses did as the LORD commanded him;

5And the assembly was gathered together unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

6And Moses said unto the congregation, This is the thing which the LORD commanded to be done.

7And Moses brought Aaron and his sons, and washed them with water.

8And he put upon him the coat, and girded him with the girdle, and clothed him with the robe,

9And put the ephod upon him, and he girded him with the curious girdle of the ephod, and bound it unto him therewith.

10And he put the breastplate upon him: also he put in the breastplate the Urim and the Thummim.

11And he put the mitre upon his head; also upon the mitre, even upon his forefront, did he put the golden plate, the holy crown; as the LORD commanded Moses.

12And Moses took the anointing oil, and anointed the tabernacle and all that was therein, and sanctified them.

13And he sprinkled thereof upon the altar seven times, and anointed the altar and all his vessels, both the laver and his foot, to sanctify them.

14And he poured of the anointing oil upon Aaron's head, and anointed him, to sanctify him.

15And Moses brought Aaron's sons, and put coats upon them, and girded them with girdles, and put bonnets upon them; as the LORD commanded Moses.

16And he brought the bullock for the sin offering:

17And Aaron and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the bullock for the sin offering.

18And he slew it; and Moses took the blood, and put it upon the horns of the altar round about with his finger, and purified the altar,

19And poured the blood at the bottom of the altar, and sanctified it, to make reconciliation upon it.

20And he took all the fat that was upon the inwards, and the caul above the liver, and the two kidneys, and their fat, and Moses burned it upon the altar.

21But the bullock, and his hide, his flesh, and his dung, he burnt with fire without the camp; as the LORD commanded Moses.

22And he brought the ram for the burnt offering: and Aaron and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the ram.

23And he killed it; and Moses sprinkled the blood upon the altar round about.

24And he cut the ram into pieces; and Moses burnt the head, and the pieces, and the fat.

25And he washed the inwards and the legs in water; and Moses burnt the whole ram upon the altar:

26It was a burnt sacrifice for a sweet savour, and an offering made by fire unto the LORD; as the LORD commanded Moses.

27And he brought the other ram, the ram of consecration:

28And Aaron and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the ram.

29And he slew it; and Moses took of the blood of it, and put it upon the tip of Aaron's right ear,

30And upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot.

31And he brought Aaron's sons, and Moses put of the blood upon the tip of their right ear,

32And upon the thumbs of their right hands, and upon the great toes of their right feet:

33And Moses sprinkled the blood upon the altar round about.

34And he took the fat, and the rump, and all the fat that was upon the inwards,

35And the caul above the liver, and the two kidneys, and their fat, and the right shoulder:

36And out of the basket of unleavened bread, that was before the LORD,

37He took one unleavened cake, and a cake of oiled bread, and one wafer, and put them on the fat, and upon the right shoulder:

38And he put all upon Aaron's hands, and upon his sons' hands, and waved them for a wave offering before the LORD.

39And Moses took them from off their hands, and burnt them on the altar upon the burnt offering:

40They were consecrations for a sweet savour: it is an offering made by fire unto the LORD.

41And Moses took the breast, and waved it for a wave offering before the LORD:

42For of the ram of consecration it was Moses' part; as the LORD commanded Moses.

43And Moses took of the anointing oil, and of the blood which was upon the altar,

44And sprinkled it upon Aaron, and upon his garments,

45And upon his sons, and upon his sons' garments with him;

46And sanctified Aaron, and his garments, and his sons, and his sons' garments with him.

47And Moses said unto Aaron and to his sons, Boil the flesh at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation:

48And there eat it with the bread that is in the basket of consecrations, as I commanded, saying, Aaron and his sons shall eat it.

49And that which remaineth of the flesh and of the bread shall ye burn with fire.

50And ye shall not go out of the door of the tabernacle of the congregation in seven days,

51Until the days of your consecration be at an end: for seven days shall he consecrate you.

52As he hath done this day, so the LORD hath commanded to do, to make an atonement for you.

53Therefore shall ye abide at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation day and night seven days,

54And keep the charge of the LORD, that ye die not: for so I am commanded.

55So Aaron and his sons did all things which the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses.

56And it came to pass on the eighth day, that Moses called Aaron and his sons, and the elders of Israel, and he said unto Aaron,

57Take thee a young calf for a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering, without blemish, and offer them before the LORD.

58And unto the children of Israel thou shalt speak, saying, Take ye a kid of the goats for a sin offering;

59And a calf and a lamb, both of the first year, without blemish, for a burnt offering;

60Also a bullock and a ram for peace offerings, to sacrifice before the LORD;

61Also a meat offering mingled with oil: for to day the LORD will appear unto you.

62And they brought that which Moses commanded before the tabernacle of the congregation:

63And all the congregation drew near and stood before the LORD.

64And Moses said, This is the thing which the LORD commanded that ye should do: and the glory of the LORD shall appear unto you.

65And Moses said unto Aaron, Go unto the altar, and offer thy sin offering, and thy burnt offering, and make an atonement for thyself, and for the people:

66And offer the offering of the people, and make an atonement for them; as the LORD commanded.

67Aaron therefore went unto the altar, and slew the calf of the sin offering, which was for himself.

68And the sons of Aaron brought the blood unto him: and he dipped his finger in the blood, and put it upon the horns of the altar,

69And poured out the blood at the bottom of the altar:

70But the fat, and the kidneys, and the caul above the liver of the sin offering, he burnt upon the altar; as the LORD commanded Moses.

71And the flesh and the hide he burnt with fire without the camp.

72And he slew the burnt offering; and Aaron's sons presented unto him the blood, which he sprinkled round about upon the altar.

73And they presented the burnt offering unto him, with the pieces thereof, and the head: and he burnt them upon the altar.

74And he did wash the inwards and the legs, and burnt them upon the burnt offering on the altar.

75And he brought the people's offering, and took the goat, which was the sin offering for the people,

76And slew it, and offered it for sin, as the first.

77And he brought the burnt offering, and offered it according to the manner.

78And he brought the meat offering, and took an handful thereof, and burnt it upon the altar, beside the burnt sacrifice of the morning.

79He slew also the bullock and the ram for a sacrifice of peace offerings, which was for the people:

80And Aaron's sons presented unto him the blood, which he sprinkled upon the altar round about,

81And the fat of the bullock and of the ram, the rump, and that which covereth the inwards, and the kidneys, and the caul above the liver:

82And they put the fat upon the breasts, and he burnt the fat upon the altar:

83And the breasts and the right shoulder Aaron waved for a wave offering before the LORD; as Moses commanded.

84And Aaron lifted up his hand toward the people, and blessed them,

85And came down from offering of the sin offering, and the burnt offering, and peace offerings.

86And Moses and Aaron went into the tabernacle of the congregation, and came out, and blessed the people:

87And the glory of the LORD appeared unto all the people.

88And there came a fire out from before the LORD, and consumed upon the altar the burnt offering and the fat:

89Which when all the people saw, they shouted, and fell on their faces.

Part 40 - The Death of Nadab and Abihu[edit]

1And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon,

2And offered strange fire before the LORD, which he commanded them not.

3And there went out fire from the LORD, and devoured them, and they died before the LORD.

4Then Moses said unto Aaron, This is it that the LORD spake, saying,

5I will be sanctified in them that come nigh me, and before all the people I will be glorified. And Aaron held his peace.

6And Moses called Mishael and Elzaphan, the sons of Uzziel the uncle of Aaron, and said unto them,

7Come near, carry your brethren from before the sanctuary out of the camp.

8So they went near, and carried them in their coats out of the camp; as Moses had said.

Part 41 - Laws of Priestly Conduct[edit]

1And Moses said unto Aaron, and unto Eleazar and unto Ithamar, his sons, Uncover not your heads, neither rend your clothes;

2Lest ye die, and lest wrath come upon all the people:

3But let your brethren, the whole house of Israel, bewail the burning which the LORD hath kindled.

4And ye shall not go out from the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, lest ye die:

5For the anointing oil of the LORD is upon you.

6And they did according to the word of Moses.

7And the LORD spake unto Aaron, saying,

8Do not drink wine nor strong drink, thou, nor thy sons with thee, when ye go into the tabernacle of the congregation, lest ye die:

9It shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations:

10And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean;

11And that ye may teach the children of Israel all the statutes which the LORD hath spoken unto them by the hand of Moses.

12And Moses spake unto Aaron, and unto Eleazar and unto Ithamar, his sons that were left,

13Take the meat offering that remaineth of the offerings of the LORD made by fire, and eat it without leaven beside the altar: for it is most holy:

14And ye shall eat it in the holy place, because it is thy due, and thy sons' due, of the sacrifices of the LORD made by fire: for so I am commanded.

15And the wave breast and heave shoulder shall ye eat in a clean place; thou, and thy sons, and thy daughters with thee:

16For they be thy due, and thy sons' due, which are given out of the sacrifices of peace offerings of the children of Israel.

17The heave shoulder and the wave breast shall they bring with the offerings made by fire of the fat, to wave it for a wave offering before the LORD;

18And it shall be thine, and thy sons' with thee, by a statute for ever; as the LORD hath commanded.

19And Moses diligently sought the goat of the sin offering, and, behold, it was burnt:

20And he was angry with Eleazar and Ithamar, the sons of Aaron which were left alive, saying,

21Wherefore have ye not eaten the sin offering in the holy place, seeing it is most holy,

22And God hath given it you to bear the iniquity of the congregation, to make atonement for them before the LORD?

23Behold, the blood of it was not brought in within the holy place:

23Ye should indeed have eaten it in the holy place, as I commanded.

24And Aaron said unto Moses, Behold, this day have they offered their sin offering and their burnt offering before the LORD; and such things have befallen me:

25And if I had eaten the sin offering to day, should it have been accepted in the sight of the LORD?

26And when Moses heard that, he was content.

Part 42 - The List of Allowed Food[edit]

1And the LORD spake unto Moses and to Aaron, saying unto them,

2Speak unto the children of Israel, saying,

3These are the beasts which ye shall eat among all the beasts that are on the earth.

4Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is clovenfooted, and cheweth the cud, among the beasts, that shall ye eat.

5Nevertheless these shall ye not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the hoof:

6As the camel, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.

7And the coney, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.

8And the hare, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.

9And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you.

10Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcase shall ye not touch; they are unclean to you.

10These shall ye eat of all that are in the waters:

11Whatsoever hath fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, them shall ye eat.

12And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters,

13And of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you:

14They shall be even an abomination unto you; ye shall not eat of their flesh, but ye shall have their carcases in abomination.

15Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you.

16And these are they which ye shall have in abomination among the fowls; they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination:

17The eagle, and the ossifrage, and the ospray, and the vulture, and the kite after his kind;

18Every raven after his kind;

19And the owl, and the night hawk, and the cuckow, and the hawk after his kind,

20And the little owl, and the cormorant, and the great owl,

21And the swan, and the pelican, and the gier eagle,

22And the stork, the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat.

23All fowls that creep, going upon all four, shall be an abomination unto you.

24Yet these may ye eat of every flying creeping thing that goeth upon all four, which have legs above their feet, to leap withal upon the earth;

25Even these of them ye may eat;

26The locust after his kind, and the bald locust after his kind, and the beetle after his kind, and the grasshopper after his kind.

27But all other flying creeping things, which have four feet, shall be an abomination unto you.

28And for these ye shall be unclean: whosoever toucheth the carcase of them shall be unclean until the even.

29And whosoever beareth ought of the carcase of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even.

30The carcases of every beast which divideth the hoof, and is not clovenfooted, nor cheweth the cud, are unclean unto you:

31Every one that toucheth them shall be unclean.

32And whatsoever goeth upon his paws, among all manner of beasts that go on all four, those are unclean unto you:

33Whoso toucheth their carcase shall be unclean until the even.

34And he that beareth the carcase of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even: they are unclean unto you.

35These also shall be unclean unto you among the creeping things that creep upon the earth;

36The weasel, and the mouse, and the tortoise after his kind,

37And the ferret, and the chameleon, and the lizard, and the snail, and the mole.

38These are unclean to you among all that creep: whosoever doth touch them, when they be dead, shall be unclean until the even.

39And upon whatsoever any of them, when they are dead, doth fall, it shall be unclean;

40Whether it be any vessel of wood, or raiment, or skin, or sack, whatsoever vessel it be, wherein any work is done, it must be put into water,

41And it shall be unclean until the even; so it shall be cleansed.

42And every earthen vessel, whereinto any of them falleth, whatsoever is in it shall be unclean; and ye shall break it.

43Of all meat which may be eaten, that on which such water cometh shall be unclean:

44And all drink that may be drunk in every such vessel shall be unclean.

45And every thing whereupon any part of their carcase falleth shall be unclean; whether it be oven, or ranges for pots,

46They shall be broken down: for they are unclean and shall be unclean unto you.

47Nevertheless a fountain or pit, wherein there is plenty of water, shall be clean:

48But that which toucheth their carcase shall be unclean.

49And if any part of their carcase fall upon any sowing seed which is to be sown, it shall be clean.

50But if any water be put upon the seed, and any part of their carcase fall thereon, it shall be unclean unto you.

51And if any beast, of which ye may eat, die; he that toucheth the carcase thereof shall be unclean until the even.

52And he that eateth of the carcase of it shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even:

53He also that beareth the carcase of it shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even.

54And every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth shall be an abomination; it shall not be eaten.

55Whatsoever goeth upon the belly, and whatsoever goeth upon all four,

56Or whatsoever hath more feet among all creeping things that creep upon the earth, them ye shall not eat; for they are an abomination.

57Ye shall not make yourselves abominable with any creeping thing that creepeth,

58Neither shall ye make yourselves unclean with them, that ye should be defiled thereby.

59For I am the LORD your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy:

60Neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

61For I am the LORD that bringeth you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy.

62This is the law of the beasts, and of the fowl, and of every living creature that moveth in the waters,

63And of every creature that creepeth upon the earth:

64To make a difference between the unclean and the clean, and between the beast that may be eaten and the beast that may not be eaten.

Part 43 - Laws of Impurity after Childbirth[edit]

1And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, saying,

2If a woman have conceived seed, and born a man child: then she shall be unclean seven days;

3According to the days of the separation for her infirmity shall she be unclean.

4And in the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised.

5And she shall then continue in the blood of her purifying three and thirty days;

6She shall touch no hallowed thing, nor come into the sanctuary, until the days of her purifying be fulfilled.

7But if she bear a maid child, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her separation:

8And she shall continue in the blood of her purifying threescore and six days.

9And when the days of her purifying are fulfilled, for a son, or for a daughter,

10She shall bring a lamb of the first year for a burnt offering, and a young pigeon, or a turtledove, for a sin offering,

11Unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, unto the priest:

12Who shall offer it before the LORD, and make an atonement for her; and she shall be cleansed from the issue of her blood.

13This is the law for her that hath born a male or a female.

14And if she be not able to bring a lamb, then she shall bring two turtles, or two young pigeons;

15The one for the burnt offering, and the other for a sin offering:

16And the priest shall make an atonement for her, and she shall be clean.

Part 44 - Laws about Confirming Leprosy and Plague[edit]

1And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron, saying,

2When a man shall have in the skin of his flesh a rising, a scab, or bright spot, and it be in the skin of his flesh like the plague of leprosy;

3Then he shall be brought unto Aaron the priest, or unto one of his sons the priests:

4And the priest shall look on the plague in the skin of the flesh:

5And when the hair in the plague is turned white, and the plague in sight be deeper than the skin of his flesh,

6It is a plague of leprosy: And the priest shall look on him, and pronounce him unclean.

7If the bright spot be white in the skin of his flesh, and in sight be not deeper than the skin, and the hair thereof be not turned white;

8Then the priest shall shut up him that hath the plague seven days: And the priest shall look on him the seventh day:

9And, behold, if the plague in his sight be at a stay, and the plague spread not in the skin;

10Then the priest shall shut him up seven days more: And the priest shall look on him again the seventh day:

11And, behold, if the plague be somewhat dark, and the plague spread not in the skin, the priest shall pronounce him clean:

12It is but a scab: And he shall wash his clothes, and be clean.

13But if the scab spread much abroad in the skin, after that he hath been seen of the priest for his cleansing, he shall be seen of the priest again.

14And if the priest see that, behold, the scab spreadeth in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a leprosy.

15When the plague of leprosy is in a man, then he shall be brought unto the priest; And the priest shall see him:

16And, behold, if the rising be white in the skin, and it have turned the hair white, and there be quick raw flesh in the rising;

17It is an old leprosy in the skin of his flesh, and the priest shall pronounce him unclean, and shall not shut him up: for he is unclean.

18And if a leprosy break out abroad in the skin, and the leprosy cover all the skin of him that hath the plague from his head even to his foot,

19Wheresoever the priest looketh; then the priest shall consider:

20And, behold, if the leprosy have covered all his flesh, he shall pronounce him clean that hath the plague: it is all turned white: he is clean.

21But when raw flesh appeareth in him, he shall be unclean.

22And the priest shall see the raw flesh, and pronounce him to be unclean: for the raw flesh is unclean: it is a leprosy.

23Or if the raw flesh turn again, and be changed unto white, he shall come unto the priest; and the priest shall see him:

24And, behold, if the plague be turned into white; then the priest shall pronounce him clean that hath the plague: he is clean.

25The flesh also, in which, even in the skin thereof, was a boil, and is healed,

26And in the place of the boil there be a white rising, or a bright spot, white, and somewhat reddish, and it be shewed to the priest;

27And if, when the priest seeth it, behold, it be in sight lower than the skin, and the hair thereof be turned white;

28The priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a plague of leprosy broken out of the boil.

29But if the priest look on it, and, behold, there be no white hairs therein, and if it be not lower than the skin, but be somewhat dark;

30Then the priest shall shut him up seven days:

31And if it spread much abroad in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a plague.

32But if the bright spot stay in his place, and spread not, it is a burning boil; and the priest shall pronounce him clean.

33Or if there be any flesh, in the skin whereof there is a hot burning, and the quick flesh that burneth have a white bright spot, somewhat reddish, or white;

34Then the priest shall look upon it: and, behold, if the hair in the bright spot be turned white, and it be in sight deeper than the skin;

35It is a leprosy broken out of the burning: wherefore the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is the plague of leprosy.

36But if the priest look on it, and, behold, there be no white hair in the bright spot, and it be no lower than the other skin, but be somewhat dark;

37Then the priest shall shut him up seven days: and the priest shall look upon him the seventh day:

38And if it be spread much abroad in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is the plague of leprosy.

39And if the bright spot stay in his place, and spread not in the skin, but it be somewhat dark;

40It is a rising of the burning, and the priest shall pronounce him clean: for it is an inflammation of the burning.

41If a man or woman have a plague upon the head or the beard;

42Then the priest shall see the plague: and, behold, if it be in sight deeper than the skin; and there be in it a yellow thin hair;

43Then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a dry scall, even a leprosy upon the head or beard.

44And if the priest look on the plague of the scall, and, behold, it be not in sight deeper than the skin, and that there is no black hair in it;

45Then the priest shall shut up him that hath the plague of the scall seven days: and in the seventh day the priest shall look on the plague:

46And, behold, if the scall spread not, and there be in it no yellow hair, and the scall be not in sight deeper than the skin;

47He shall be shaven, but the scall shall he not shave;

48And the priest shall shut up him that hath the scall seven days more: and in the seventh day the priest shall look on the scall:

49And, behold, if the scall be not spread in the skin, nor be in sight deeper than the skin;

50Then the priest shall pronounce him clean: and he shall wash his clothes, and be clean.

51But if the scall spread much in the skin after his cleansing; then the priest shall look on him:

52And, behold, if the scall be spread in the skin, the priest shall not seek for yellow hair; he is unclean.

53But if the scall be in his sight at a stay, and that there is black hair grown up therein;

54The scall is healed, he is clean: and the priest shall pronounce him clean.

55If a man also or a woman have in the skin of their flesh bright spots, even white bright spots;

56Then the priest shall look: and, behold, if the bright spots in the skin of their flesh be darkish white;

57It is a freckled spot that groweth in the skin; he is clean.

58And the man whose hair is fallen off his head, he is bald; yet is he clean.

59And he that hath his hair fallen off from the part of his head toward his face, he is forehead bald: yet is he clean.

60And if there be in the bald head, or bald forehead, a white reddish sore; it is a leprosy sprung up in his bald head, or his bald forehead.

61Then the priest shall look upon it:

62And, behold, if the rising of the sore be white reddish in his bald head, or in his bald forehead, as the leprosy appeareth in the skin of the flesh;

63He is a leprous man, he is unclean: the priest shall pronounce him utterly unclean; his plague is in his head.

64And the leper in whom the plague is, his clothes shall be rent, and his head bare, and he shall put a covering upon his upper lip, and shall cry, Unclean, unclean.

65All the days wherein the plague shall be in him he shall be defiled; he is unclean:

66He shall dwell alone; without the camp shall his habitation be.

67The garment also that the plague of leprosy is in, whether it be a woollen garment, or a linen garment;

68Whether it be in the warp, or woof; of linen, or of woollen; whether in a skin, or in any thing made of skin;

69And if the plague be greenish or reddish in the garment, or in the skin, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in any thing of skin;

70It is a plague of leprosy, and shall be shewed unto the priest:

71And the priest shall look upon the plague, and shut up it that hath the plague seven days: and he shall look on the plague on the seventh day:

72If the plague be spread in the garment, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in a skin, or in any work that is made of skin;

73The plague is a fretting leprosy; it is unclean.

74He shall therefore burn that garment, whether warp or woof, in woollen or in linen, or any thing of skin, wherein the plague is:

75For it is a fretting leprosy; it shall be burnt in the fire.

76And if the priest shall look, and, behold, the plague be not spread in the garment, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in any thing of skin;

77Then the priest shall command that they wash the thing wherein the plague is, and he shall shut it up seven days more: and the priest shall look on the plague, after that it is washed:

78And, behold, if the plague have not changed his colour, and the plague be not spread;

79It is unclean; thou shalt burn it in the fire; it is fret inward, whether it be bare within or without.

80And the priest shall look on the plague, after that it is washed: and, behold, if the plague have not changed his colour, and the plague be not spread; it is unclean; thou shalt burn it in the fire; it is fret inward, whether it be bare within or without.

81And if the priest look, and, behold, the plague be somewhat dark after the washing of it;

82Then he shall rend it out of the garment, or out of the skin, or out of the warp, or out of the woof:

83And if it appear still in the garment, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in any thing of skin;

84It is a spreading plague: thou shalt burn that wherein the plague is with fire.

85And the garment, either warp, or woof, or whatsoever thing of skin it be, which thou shalt wash, the plague be departed from them, then it shall be washed the second time, and shall be clean.

86If the plague be departed from them, then it shall be washed the second time, and shall be clean.

87This is the law of the plague of leprosy in a garment of woollen or linen, either in the warp, or woof, or any thing of skins,

88To pronounce it clean, or to pronounce it unclean.

Part 45 - Laws about Atoning for Leprosy and Plague[edit]

1And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, This shall be the law of the leper in the day of his cleansing:

2He shall be brought unto the priest: and the priest shall go forth out of the camp;

3And the priest shall look, and, behold, if the plague of leprosy be healed in the leper;

4Then shall the priest command to take for him that is to be cleansed two birds alive and clean, and cedar wood, and scarlet, and hyssop:

5And the priest shall command that one of the birds be killed in an earthen vessel over running water:

6As for the living bird, he shall take it, and the cedar wood, and the scarlet, and the hyssop,

7And shall dip them and the living bird in the blood of the bird that was killed over the running water:

8And he shall sprinkle upon him that is to be cleansed from the leprosy seven times,

9And shall pronounce him clean, and shall let the living bird loose into the open field.

10And he that is to be cleansed shall wash his clothes, and shave off all his hair, and wash himself in water, that he may be clean:

11And after that he shall come into the camp, and shall tarry abroad out of his tent seven days.

12But it shall be on the seventh day, that he shall shave all his hair off his head and his beard and his eyebrows, even all his hair he shall shave off:

13And he shall wash his clothes, also he shall wash his flesh in water, and he shall be clean.

14And on the eighth day he shall take two he lambs without blemish, and one ewe lamb of the first year without blemish,

15And three tenth deals of fine flour for a meat offering, mingled with oil, and one log of oil.

16And the priest that maketh him clean shall present the man that is to be made clean, and those things, before the LORD, at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation:

17And the priest shall take one he lamb, and offer him for a trespass offering, and the log of oil, and wave them for a wave offering before the LORD:

18And he shall slay the lamb in the place where he shall kill the sin offering and the burnt offering, in the holy place:

19For as the sin offering is the priest's, so is the trespass offering: it is most holy:

20And the priest shall take some of the blood of the trespass offering, and the priest shall put it upon the tip of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed,

21And upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot:

22And the priest shall take some of the log of oil, and pour it into the palm of his own left hand:

23And the priest shall dip his right finger in the oil that is in his left hand, and shall sprinkle of the oil with his finger seven times before the LORD:

24And of the rest of the oil that is in his hand shall the priest put upon the tip of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed,

25And upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot, upon the blood of the trespass offering:

26And the remnant of the oil that is in the priest's hand he shall pour upon the head of him that is to be cleansed:

27And the priest shall make an atonement for him before the LORD.

28And the priest shall offer the sin offering, and make an atonement for him that is to be cleansed from his uncleanness;

29And afterward he shall kill the burnt offering:and the priest shall offer the burnt offering and the meat offering upon the altar:

30And the priest shall make an atonement for him, and he shall be clean.

31And if he be poor, and cannot get so much;

32Then he shall take one lamb for a trespass offering to be waved, to make an atonement for him,

33And one tenth deal of fine flour mingled with oil for a meat offering, and a log of oil;

34And two turtledoves, or two young pigeons, such as he is able to get;

35And the one shall be a sin offering, and the other a burnt offering.

36And he shall bring them on the eighth day for his cleansing unto the priest,

37Unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, before the LORD.

38And the priest shall take the lamb of the trespass offering, and the log of oil, and the priest shall wave them for a wave offering before the LORD:

39And he shall kill the lamb of the trespass offering,

40And the priest shall take some of the blood of the trespass offering, and put it upon the tip of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed,

41And upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot:

42And the priest shall pour of the oil into the palm of his own left hand:

43And the priest shall sprinkle with his right finger some of the oil that is in his left hand seven times before the LORD:

44And the priest shall put of the oil that is in his hand upon the tip of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed,

45And upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot, upon the place of the blood of the trespass offering:

46And the rest of the oil that is in the priest's hand he shall put upon the head of him that is to be cleansed, to make an atonement for him before the LORD.

47And he shall offer the one of the turtledoves, or of the young pigeons, such as he can get;

48Even such as he is able to get, the one for a sin offering, and the other for a burnt offering, with the meat offering:

49And the priest shall make an atonement for him that is to be cleansed before the LORD.

50This is the law of him in whom is the plague of leprosy, whose hand is not able to get that which pertaineth to his cleansing.

51And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,

52When ye be come into the land of Canaan, which I give to you for a possession, and I put the plague of leprosy in a house of the land of your possession;

53And he that owneth the house shall come and tell the priest, saying, It seemeth to me there is as it were a plague in the house:

54Then the priest shall command that they empty the house, before the priest go into it to see the plague, that all that is in the house be not made unclean:

55And afterward the priest shall go in to see the house: and he shall look on the plague,

56And, behold, if the plague be in the walls of the house with hollow strakes, greenish or reddish, which in sight are lower than the wall;

57Then the priest shall go out of the house to the door of the house, and shut up the house seven days:

58And the priest shall come again the seventh day, and shall look: and, behold, if the plague be spread in the walls of the house;

59Then the priest shall command that they take away the stones in which the plague is,

60And they shall cast them into an unclean place without the city:

61And he shall cause the house to be scraped within round about,

62And they shall pour out the dust that they scrape off without the city into an unclean place:

63And they shall take other stones, and put them in the place of those stones; and he shall take other morter, and shall plaister the house.

64And if the plague come again, and break out in the house,

65After that he hath taken away the stones, and after he hath scraped the house, and after it is plaistered;

66Then the priest shall come and look, and, behold, if the plague be spread in the house, it is a fretting leprosy in the house; it is unclean.

67And he shall break down the house, the stones of it, and the timber thereof, and all the morter of the house;

68And he shall carry them forth out of the city into an unclean place.

69Moreover he that goeth into the house all the while that it is shut up shall be unclean until the even.

70And he that lieth in the house shall wash his clothes; and he that eateth in the house shall wash his clothes.

71And if the priest shall come in, and look upon it, and, behold, the plague hath not spread in the house, after the house was plaistered:

72Then the priest shall pronounce the house clean, because the plague is healed.

73And he shall take to cleanse the house two birds, and cedar wood, and scarlet, and hyssop:

74And he shall kill the one of the birds in an earthen vessel over running water:

75And he shall take the cedar wood, and the hyssop, and the scarlet, and the living bird,

76And shall take the cedar wood, and the hyssop, and the scarlet, and the living bird, and dip them in the blood of the slain bird, and in the running water, and sprinkle the house seven times:

77And he shall cleanse the house with the blood of the bird, and with the running water,

78And with the living bird, and with the cedar wood, and with the hyssop, and with the scarlet:

79But he shall let go the living bird out of the city into the open fields,

80And make an atonement for the house: and it shall be clean.

81This is the law for all manner of plague of leprosy, and scall,

82And for the leprosy of a garment, and of a house,

83And for a rising, and for a scab, and for a bright spot:

84To teach when it is unclean, and when it is clean: this is the law of leprosy.

Part 46 - Laws of Bodily Discharges[edit]

1And the LORD spake unto Moses and to Aaron, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them,

9And what saddle soever he rideth upon that hath the issue shall be unclean.

10And whosoever toucheth any thing that was under him shall be unclean until the even:

11And he that beareth any of those things shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even.

12And whomsoever he toucheth that hath the issue, and hath not rinsed his hands in water,

13He shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even.

14And the vessel of earth, that he toucheth which hath the issue, shall be broken: and every vessel of wood shall be rinsed in water.

15And when he that hath an issue is cleansed of his issue; then he shall number to himself seven days for his cleansing,

16And wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in running water, and shall be clean.

17And on the eighth day he shall take to him two turtledoves, or two young pigeons,

18And come before the LORD unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and give them unto the priest:

19And the priest shall offer them, the one for a sin offering, and the other for a burnt offering;

20And the priest shall make an atonement for him before the LORD for his issue.

21And if any man's seed of copulation go out from him, then he shall wash all his flesh in water, and be unclean until the even.

22And every garment, and every skin, whereon is the seed of copulation, shall be washed with water, and be unclean until the even.

23The woman also with whom man shall lie with seed of copulation, they shall both bathe themselves in water, and be unclean until the even.

24And if a woman have an issue, and her issue in her flesh be blood, she shall be put apart seven days:

25And whosoever toucheth her shall be unclean until the even.

26And every thing that she lieth upon in her separation shall be unclean: every thing also that she sitteth upon shall be unclean.

28And whosoever toucheth any thing that she sat upon shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even.

29And if it be on her bed, or on any thing whereon she sitteth, when he toucheth it, he shall be unclean until the even.

30And if any man lie with her at all, and her flowers be upon him, he shall be unclean seven days;

31And all the bed whereon he lieth shall be unclean.

32And if a woman have an issue of her blood many days out of the time of her separation, or if it run beyond the time of her separation;

33All the days of the issue of her uncleanness shall be as the days of her separation: she shall be unclean.

34Every bed whereon she lieth all the days of her issue shall be unto her as the bed of her separation:

35And whatsoever she sitteth upon shall be unclean, as the uncleanness of her separation.

36And whosoever toucheth those things shall be unclean, and shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even.

37But if she be cleansed of her issue, then she shall number to herself seven days, and after that she shall be clean.

38And on the eighth day she shall take unto her two turtles, or two young pigeons,

39And bring them unto the priest, to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

40And the priest shall offer the one for a sin offering, and the other for a burnt offering;

41And the priest shall make an atonement for her before the LORD for the issue of her uncleanness.

42Thus shall ye separate the children of Israel from their uncleanness;

43That they die not in their uncleanness, when they defile my tabernacle that is among them.

44This is the law of him that hath an issue, and of him whose seed goeth from him, and is defiled therewith;

45And of her that is sick of her flowers, and of him that hath an issue, of the man, and of the woman, and of him that lieth with her that is unclean.

Part 47 - The Ritual for the National Sin[edit]

1And the LORD spake unto Moses after the death of the two sons of Aaron, when they offered before the LORD, and died;

2And the LORD said unto Moses, Speak unto Aaron thy brother,

3That he come not at all times into the holy place within the vail before the mercy seat, which is upon the ark;

4That he die not: for I will appear in the cloud upon the mercy seat.

5Thus shall Aaron come into the holy place: with a young bullock for a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering.

6He shall put on the holy linen coat, and he shall have the linen breeches upon his flesh,

7And shall be girded with a linen girdle, and with the linen mitre shall he be attired:

8These are holy garments; therefore shall he wash his flesh in water, and so put them on.

9And he shall take of the congregation of the children of Israel two kids of the goats for a sin offering, and one ram for a burnt offering.

10And Aaron shall offer his bullock of the sin offering, which is for himself, and make an atonement for himself, and for his house.

11And he shall take the two goats, and present them before the LORD at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

12And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats; one lot for the LORD, and the other lot for the scapegoat.

13And Aaron shall bring the goat upon which the LORD's lot fell, and offer him for a sin offering.

14But the goat, on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat, shall be presented alive before the LORD,

15To make an atonement with him, and to let him go for a scapegoat into the wilderness.

16And Aaron shall bring the bullock of the sin offering, which is for himself,

17And shall make an atonement for himself, and for his house, and shall kill the bullock of the sin offering which is for himself:

18And he shall take a censer full of burning coals of fire from off the altar before the LORD,

19And his hands full of sweet incense beaten small, and bring it within the vail:

20And he shall put the incense upon the fire before the LORD,

21That the cloud of the incense may cover the mercy seat that is upon the testimony, that he die not:

22And he shall take of the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it with his finger upon the mercy seat eastward;

23And before the mercy seat shall he sprinkle of the blood with his finger seven times.

24Then shall he kill the goat of the sin offering, that is for the people, and bring his blood within the vail,

25And do with that blood as he did with the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it upon the mercy seat, and before the mercy seat:

26And he shall make an atonement for the holy place,

27Because of the uncleanness of the children of Israel, and because of their transgressions in all their sins:

28And so shall he do for the tabernacle of the congregation, that remaineth among them in the midst of their uncleanness.

29And there shall be no man in the tabernacle of the congregation when he goeth in to make an atonement in the holy place,

30Until he come out, and have made an atonement for himself, and for his household, and for all the congregation of Israel.

31And he shall go out unto the altar that is before the LORD, and make an atonement for it;

32And shall take of the blood of the bullock, and of the blood of the goat, and put it upon the horns of the altar round about.

33And he shall sprinkle of the blood upon it with his finger seven times, and cleanse it, and hallow it from the uncleanness of the children of Israel.

34And when he hath made an end of reconciling the holy place, and the tabernacle of the congregation, and the altar,

35He shall bring the live goat: and Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat,

36And confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the goat,

37And shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into the wilderness:

38And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land not inhabited: and he shall let go the goat in the wilderness.

39And Aaron shall come into the tabernacle of the congregation,

40And shall put off the linen garments, which he put on when he went into the holy place, and shall leave them there:

41And he shall wash his flesh with water in the holy place, and put on his garments, and come forth,

42And offer his burnt offering, and the burnt offering of the people, and make an atonement for himself, and for the people.

43And the fat of the sin offering shall he burn upon the altar.

44And he that let go the goat for the scapegoat shall wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in water, and afterward come into the camp.

45And the bullock for the sin offering, and the goat for the sin offering,

46Whose blood was brought in to make atonement in the holy place, shall one carry forth without the camp;

47And they shall burn in the fire their skins, and their flesh, and their dung.

48And he that burneth them shall wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in water, and afterward he shall come into the camp.

49And this shall be a statute for ever unto you:

50That in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, ye shall afflict your souls, and do no work at all,

51Whether it be one of your own country, or a stranger that sojourneth among you:

52For on that day shall the priest make an atonement for you, to cleanse you, that ye may be clean from all your sins before the LORD.

53It shall be a sabbath of rest unto you, and ye shall afflict your souls, by a statute for ever.

54And the priest, whom he shall anoint, and whom he shall consecrate to minister in the priest's office in his father's stead,

55Shall make the atonement, and shall put on the linen clothes, even the holy garments:

56And he shall make an atonement for the holy sanctuary, and he shall make an atonement for the tabernacle of the congregation,

57And for the altar, and he shall make an atonement for the priests, and for all the people of the congregation.

58And this shall be an everlasting statute unto you, to make an atonement for the children of Israel for all their sins once a year.

59And he did as the LORD commanded Moses.

Part 48 - The Prohibition on Offerings Anywhere Apart From the Tabernacle[edit]

1And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto Aaron, and unto his sons, and unto all the children of Israel, and say unto them;

2This is the thing which the LORD hath commanded, saying,

3What man soever there be of the house of Israel, that killeth an ox, or lamb, or goat,in the camp, or that killeth it out of the camp,

4And bringeth it notunto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation,to offer an offering unto the LORDbefore the tabernacle of the LORD;

5Blood shall be imputed unto that man; he hath shed blood; and that man shall be cut off from among his people:

6To the end that the children of Israel may bring their sacrifices, which they offer in the open field, even that they may bring them unto the LORD,

7Untothe door of the tabernacle of the congregation, untothe priest, and offer them for peace offerings unto the LORD.

8And the priest shall sprinkle the blood upon the altar of the LORDat the door of the tabernacle of the congregation,

9And burn the fat for a sweet savour unto the LORD.

10And they shall no more offer their sacrifices unto devils, after whom they have gone a whoring.

11This shall be a statute for ever unto them throughout their generations. And thou shalt say unto them,

12Whatsoever man there be of the house of Israel, or of the strangers which sojourn among you, that offereth a burnt offering or sacrifice,

13And bringeth it notunto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation,to offer it unto the LORD;

14Even that man shall be cut off from among his people.

Part 49 - The Prohibition against Consuming Blood[edit]

1And whatsoever man there be of the house of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among you, that eateth any manner of blood;

2I will even set my face against that soul that eateth blood, and will cut him off from among his people.

3For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls:

4For it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.

5Therefore I said unto the children of Israel, No soul of you shall eat blood, neither shall any stranger that sojourneth among you eat blood.

6And whatsoever man there be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among you,

7Which hunteth and catcheth any beast or fowl that may be eaten;

8He shall even pour out the blood thereof, and cover it with dust.

9For it is the life of all flesh; the blood of it is for the life thereof:

10Therefore I said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall eat the blood of no manner of flesh:

11For the life of all flesh is the blood thereof: whosoever eateth it shall be cut off.

12And every soul that eateth that which died of itself, or that which was torn with beasts,

13Whether it be one of your own country, or a stranger,

14He shall both wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even: then shall he be clean.

15But if he wash them not, nor bathe his flesh; then he shall bear his iniquity.

Part 50 - Prohibitions against Certain Sexual Relations[edit]

1And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them,

2I am the LORD your God. After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do:

3And after the doings of the land of Canaan, whither I bring you, shall ye not do: neither shall ye walk in their ordinances.

4Ye shall do my judgments, and keep mine ordinances, to walk therein: I am the LORD your God.

5Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments: which if a man do, he shall live in them: I am the LORD.

6None of you shall approach to any that is near of kin to him, to uncover their nakedness: I am the LORD.

7The nakedness of thy father, or the nakedness of thy mother, shalt thou not uncover:

8She is thy mother; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.

9The nakedness of thy father's wife shalt thou not uncover: it is thy father's nakedness.

10The nakedness of thy sister, the daughter of thy father, or daughter of thy mother,

11Whether she be born at home, or born abroad, even their nakedness thou shalt not uncover.

12The nakedness of thy son's daughter, or of thy daughter's daughter, even their nakedness thou shalt not uncover:

13For theirs is thine own nakedness.

14The nakedness of thy father's wife's daughter, begotten of thy father, she is thy sister, thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.

15Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father's sister: she is thy father's near kinswoman.

16Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy mother's sister for she is thy mother's near kinswoman.

17Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father's brother, thou shalt not approach to his wife: she is thine aunt.

18Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy daughter in law: she is thy son's wife; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.

19Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy brother's wife: it is thy brother's nakedness.

20Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her daughter,

21Neither shalt thou take her son's daughter, or her daughter's daughter, to uncover her nakedness;

22For they are her near kinswomen: it is wickedness.

23Neither shalt thou take a wife to her sister, to vex her, to uncover her nakedness, beside the other in her life time.

24Also thou shalt not approach unto a woman to uncover her nakedness, as long as she is put apart for her uncleanness.

25Moreover thou shalt not lie carnally with thy neighbour's wife, to defile thyself with her.

26And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech,

27Neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD.

28Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

29Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith:

30Neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion.

31Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you:

32And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.

33Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations;

34Neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you:

35(For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;)

36That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you.

37For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people.

38Therefore shall ye keep mine ordinance, that ye commit not any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you,

39And that ye defile not yourselves therein: I am the LORD your God.
